She has begun her teething journey. We have been going through numerous bibs a day covered in drool. She chews like crazy on her hands and Sophie the Teething Giraffe. She is just little miss fussy pants this week. We have been having lots of cuddles so I haven’t been able to get a lot done at all this week.
The word that sums up my week is Fussy. I have one little fussy 14 week old baby on my hands this week. Bless her she doesn’t cry just fusses. Her bottom lip comes out and it’s so cute.
Also this week has been a complete turnaround for baby girls sleep pattern. We have been having 6-7 hours sleep for a few weeks. It’s been glorious for me! But now fussy baby girl has been waking at least 3x a night. Like I said before she doesn’t cry, just makes her fussy noises. I pick her up and give her a little dream feed and off she goes back to sleep again. It’s very tiring and draining.
A few weeks back I heard about an app called The Wonder Weeks and it tells you when your baby is going through her mental development and growth leaps. Baby girl is in one of her leaps now so that explains her fussiness. She is in leap 4 at the moment where the little red baby head is shown in the picture below, and lasts for another 23 days!. This leap is known as the World of Events.
After this leap she will be able to perceive smooth transitions with her senses. Like grasping with her hands. This is completely correct as she picked my glasses off my face yesterday and threw them on the floor! She has also started to react to her name and is always looking to see where her dad or I am. These are all new developments.
Thank you for sharing
